Serenity

Published June 29, 2011 in Landscape, Travel

Taken at the Portland Japanese Garden in July of 2011.

Nikon D200 with Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6 G telephoto zoom lens. One of the last picture I took with this lens as it rolled out of the camera bag onto the pavement when I returned to the hotel and never worked again.

The Nikon D200 has a menu setting for “extra vivid colors” that was unintentionally selected during my entire trip to Portland. Having seen the results I cannot believe that anyone would intentionally select this mode. Every one of my Portland images takes a great deal of work in Photoshop before the colors are acceptable. Ever since Portland I’ve made it a point  to reset the camera every time I use it and I always save images as “jpg+RAW” so I always have a non-processed image to work with should I accidentally select the wrong shooting mode.
